Since 1989 mesalamine induced pancreatitis has been described . Several mesalamine preparations have been implicated in causing pancreatitis, both orally and via enema, and sulfasalazine. A hypersensitivity mechanism seems to be involved and pancreatitis occurs usually after few days or weeks (short latency).
Since 1980, azathioprine (AZA) and its metabolite 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) were reported to be able to induce pancreatitis. /www.ehealthme.com/ds/apriso/pancreatitis/
